No action scenes (save one quick punch between mates), no steamy sex scenes, no hero, no villian, in fact very little point at all. But then that's real life.
This movie is about real life, four people who work nights just happen to be regulars at a late night coffee bar after work. They meet, chat and become acquaintences. Their time together is spent talking uter rubbish, cruising pointlessly in a car, injesting caffeine and shooting pool. It could be a scene straight from any coffee bar, pool hall, local diner or bar.
Together they exchange conversation, sometimes about the deepest emotions, sometimes about nothing much at all, but inevitably they become drawn into friendship, even before they realise this themselves.
The story isn't really important in a movie like this, it's about personalities and the idea of friendship. Anyone who has made seemingly random friends in school, university or just a local bar will be able to identify with this and propbably with all of the charachters as well.
Anyone who enjoyed the splendid Human Traffic will also enjoy this as (while not quite as good) the central ideas are the same and neither revert to the schmaltz of The Breakfast Club.
This is not a movie for "the night in with the boys/girls" but is a nice movie to watch late in the day, especially if (like me) you no longer see as much of your random mates as you would like (as happens when you grow up).
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the 90 minutes of my life that this film took up and it has perhaps prompted me to get in touch with some people a bit more often. A good solid 4/5 movie for me.
